Corrigan’s Gambling Corner: Week Three

Daniel Corrigan | January 26th, 2020

Welcome back. We are on the board in 2020 with a solid 3-1 week. I have decided to give more picks rather than just a “lock of the week” or an “over of the week.” I know I wake up in the morning and instantly check the lines for the day. Which is weird, because I live in Ohio, a place that won’t allow me to place bets.

Heat vs Nets reaction

Jacari McRae | January 11th, 2020

With five minutes left in the fourth period, the Miami Heat were up by nine points. Then, the Brooklyn Nets took control the rest of the way with a 17-4 run to close the game. The Nets 2-3 zone made it tough for the Heat’s offense down the stretch. The loss puts the Heat’s season record to 27-11 for the season. They’re also 10-10 on the road.

Here are my takeaways from Friday’s loss to the Nets. Continue reading

Gabe Botero | December 10th, 2019

Nick and Gabe are back talking about a predicted firing in the Northeast, whether or not the Nets are better without Kyrie, and James Harden’s conspiracy covered “missed dunk”. Gabe hops on his new soapbox and complains about how LeBron “Bronny” Jr. has more televised games than half of the NBA and Nick breaks down the changes that Adam Silver wants to bring to the NBA. Plus: Scooby-Doo and Chris Paul in the same sentence? Listen to the episode to find out! Continue reading

HEAT vs Nets reaction

Jacari McRae| December 2nd, 2019

For the first time in a month, the Miami Heat found themselves in a close game. Trailing by seven with under two minutes left, the Heat had to dig deep to leave Brooklyn with a win. And they did it by getting multiple stops on the defensive end. Miami now enters Monday with a 14-5 season record.

Here are my takeaways from Sunday’s 109-106 victory over the Brooklyn Nets.

Warriors vs HEAT reaction

Jacari McRae| November 30th, 2019

The last time the Miami Heat and Golden State Warriors faced off, the Heat beat the Warriors thanks to a Dwyane Wade buzzer-beating three-pointer. This time there were no late-game theatrics. After the Warriors trimmed the Heat’s lead to six in the third period, the Heat regrouped in the final period and ended the game with a 122-105 win. The victory moves the Heat season record to 13-5.

Here are my takeaways from Friday’s win.

Is Kyrie Irving Worth the Gamble for Brooklyn?

Kit Shepard | June 25th, 2019

The Brooklyn Nets‘ 2018-19 season was a demonstration of what can be achieved when team-mates simply like one another. Considered a long shot to make the playoffs last October, New York’s unfashionable franchise defied all expectations to make the playoffs, courtesy of strong chemistry, a never-say-die attitude and an egoless group of much-maligned misfits. Although they bowed out in the first round, they gave the heavily-favored Philadelphia 76ers a fright and with a band of young, united players, the Nets appear perfectly placed to develop further in the near future.

Celtics Preview for March 29 – March 30

Eddie Bronsozian |March 27th, 2019

The Boston Celtics are coming off a horrendous 0-4 week. I believed they would go 3-1, but it definitely didn’t turn out that way. They collapsed against the Charlotte Hornets and it seems like they’re going through that mood swing cycle again as the season comes to an end.

Kit Shepard | February 21st, 2019

With temperatures getting warmer, days getting longer, and All-Star weekend behind us, attention can start to shift towards the Holy Grail of the NBA campaign. Whilst this year’s regular season has been wildly entertaining, and the upcoming free agency is set to be the most dramatic in recent memory, it is the time between mid-April and mid-June that will always be the most exciting period in the basketball calendar. To paraphrase the NBA’s favorite slogan, the postseason is ‘why we watch’.

Achieving his Niche: How Jahlil Okafor Found his Place in the League

Liam Romero | February 10th, 2019

The 2015 draft class has progressed to the point where the players have made their names in the league and NBA fans now know who’s relevant and who isn’t. Players like Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell, and Kristaps Porzingis define the 2015 NBA Draft Class and have solidified themselves in the league. One name that was thought to be a bust until this season is the third overall pick, Jahlil Okafor. The star big man came off a national championship team with Duke University in 2015.

Celtics Preview for the Week of Jan 28 – Feb 3

Eddie Bronsozian | January 28th, 2019

The Boston Celtics ended last week with a 2 – 1 record. They had a solid week even though they had one loss because it was against the Golden State Warriors who are the best team in the league. They played well against the Warriors but just came up short due to some sloppy turnovers.

Seven Trade Options for the Houston Rockets to Replace Clint Capela

Mike Fanelli | January 17th, 2019

Back from the dead, the Houston Rockets have won 14 of their last 18 games and are currently the fourth seed in the Western Conference mainly because James Harden is playing like a mad man. During the winning streak, Harden is averaging 40.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, 8.9 assists and 38.4 minutes per game while registering five 30 point triple-doubles. The Rockets have been killed by injuries recently and now rising star center Clint Capela is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a thumb injury.

The Emergence of D’Angelo Russell

Levon Satamian | January 16th, 2019

D’Angelo Russell was drafted in 2015 by the Los Angeles Lakers as the 2nd overall pick in the draft. Russell came into the league with high hopes of being the next star point guard for the Lakers. He had the capability of being the next star point guard for the Lakers too, but his stint with the Lakers, unfortunately, didn’t last long.

The Nets’ Present May be as Bright as their Future

Kit Shepard | January 19th, 2019

In August of last year, I spoke to Joe Harris of the Brooklyn Nets about his aspirations for both himself and his team ahead of the upcoming NBA season. The then 26-year-old was reluctant to reveal exactly how far he believed the team could go, but he assured me that they had “a lot of reasons to be optimistic”. Three weeks into 2019, with over half of the regular season complete, that could be a serious understatement.

Brooklyn Nets: 2018 Season Preview

Givanni Damico | October 4th, 2018

Slow and Steady Wins the Race: Joe Harris Tells Us Why the Future is Bright in Brooklyn

Kit Shepard | September 19th, 2018

The Brooklyn Nets do not have the reputation as the most patient organization in the NBA. In 2013, they gave up four first-round picks to the Boston Celtics for (among others) a 35-year-old Paul Pierce and a 37-year-old Kevin Garnett, in a desperate attempt to contend now. It was a disaster for Brooklyn. Garnett and Pierce had both left by 2015, leaving the franchise’s present looking bleak, and their future looking horrific.
